This is when I feel very out of touch... I've seen exactly one movie form your lists! How sad is that? At least I got to see that one with some wonderful girls :)

MIL said...

I LOVE that you do this! And holy freak you have an Oscars Party??? WOW..You see, your tottaly "IT" girl material.

My favorites from your list that I've seen...

1. Twilight..Like DUH!!!
2. The Dark Knight
3. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
4. The Other Boleyn Girl

Okay, small confession about your list...Your favorite was my least Favorite...{Don't throw anything!!!!} {I'm sorry!!!!}

Reason being was I just didnt like the whole "brother/sister" thing about helping her out. Even in theroy. But, I did like it, it just wasnt my fave.

As for the others I havent seen but the duchess is on my list along with the new Brad Pitt.
Make sure you post stuff about your party!!

Wow, I am envious that you have seen all of these. I have only seen 1,2,3 and 6 on your Best Films list, and though my order would be a bit different than yours, I thought they were good. I will definitely have to see some of the others on your list. I am especially interested in The Duchess and Cranford. You know I love those British period dramas. :-)

P.S. Would you mind telling me why you liked John Adams? I have heard other people say it is great, but never for any specific reason.

Just a word of warning about the Duchess - I decided to tack it on to the end of my list mostly because of all the costumes and scenery. It is based on a true story, but it isn't exactly a "happy" movie. Just wanted you to be forewarned. That being said, I hope you like it. Kierra Knightley does an excellent job.

Cristy - a John Adams review to come soon!

I have to say I've only seen two of the movies on your list -- Kit & Wall-E. I do want to see several of the movies on your list. We don't go to the movies much so I usually get them from the library. I'll have to make sure I check them out.
